Vertex SMB Introduces Sales and Use Tax Connector for Magento eCommerce Platform
As a new technology partner and Imagine Commerce 2015 sponsor, Vertex SMB puts the power of sales tax calculations and returns in a single solution for online retailers
Berwyn, PA – (April 21, 2015) – Vertex SMB, a leader in sales and use tax solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, has introduced a sales and use tax extension for the Magento eCommerce platform. The Vertex SMB extension works with both the Magento Enterprise Edition and the Magento Community Edition, and automatically calculates accurate sales and use taxes on shopping cart items. It offers online retailers the ability to perform tax calculations and prepare returns in a single cloud solution.
The Vertex SMB extension for Magento helps businesses stay compliant across multiple jurisdictions and states with less effort, cost, and risk. Vertex SMB automatically performs instant and accurate sales tax calculations and validates addresses to help ensure more precise taxation. Businesses can use the solution to maintain exemption certificates and process coupon codes and discounts as well. When it’s time to file, automatically-generated signature-ready PDF returns are just a click away or Vertex SMB can file and remit on behalf of the business.
The introduction of this connector marks the beginning of a partnership between Vertex SMB and Magento. Vertex SMB has become a technology partner with Magento and is a gold sponsor of Magento’s Imagine Commerce 2015 event taking place April 20-22 at the Wynn Las Vegas. Attendees of the event can visit booth 324 to learn more about Vertex SMB and to see a demonstration of the solution.
“After a history of more than 35 years in the enterprise tax space, we introduced Vertex SMB just over a year ago to bring enterprise-level sales and use tax automation to small and midsize businesses. The response to our solution has been overwhelmingly positive because of its accessibility, accuracy, ease of use, and affordability,” said David Henkin, vice president and general manager at Vertex SMB. “Our partnership with Magento allows us to extend the power of our solution to a much broader base of users – Magento’s more than 240,000 merchants worldwide.”
